King's Cross is Timothy Keller's revelatory look at the life of Christ as told in the Gospel of Mark. There have been many biographies of Jesus, but few will be as anticipated as this one by Keller, the man Newsweek calls "a C. S. Lewis for the 21st century".
In it, Keller shows how the story of Jesus is at once cosmic, historical, and personal, calling each of us to look anew at our relationship with God. Like Keller's other books, it has tremendous crossover appeal, but it is also ideal for the faithful, those who are looking for closer connections to Jesus and Christianity.
Please note: This book has also been published under the alternate title Jesus the King: Understanding the Life and Death of the Son of God.

Jesus for Real People
When I read most Christian Books, it feels more like an overt sales pitch - the author is trying to convert me to his or her way of thinking, but the funny thing is that most Christian authors also communicate in such a way that if you don't already share their presuppositions it is difficult to thoughtfully consider what they are saying.
Timothy Keller is an author for "everyman" (and woman). He writes in an engaging style that invited me to consider what he is saying in a language that normal people speak. He presents a Jesus for real people.

Narrator voice -- not quite Tim Keller
The book, "King's Cross," is excellent for a compelling overview of amazing treasures that are often overlooked in the Biblical book of Mark. A particularly relevant resource as we are approaching Easter 2011.
I am used to the author's voice through audio files of his sermons. So I had to adjust to hearing Lloyd James' voice and rhythm of narration. Once I focused on the work itself rather than the sound of the narration, I found Mr. James' version to be fine -- just not what I expected at first listen.
A great resource -- just don't expect Tim Keller's voice.
